I just came back to Dallas from spending a week in the Desert Southwest. One of the locations I visited was Monument Valley. The photo below was taken with the Fuji X-T1 using the 18-55mm around 5am in the morning from the deck of The View Hotel. The moon did not rise until early in the morning and the cloud cover presented a problem.. so I waited and waited.
I just got back home from a 9 hour drive from Alamogordo, NM and wanted to take a shot at doing a quick post on this shot. I'm sure a better image would result from more careful post work but that will have to wait for a complete review of all the over 1,000 photos taken during this quick trip to the Desert Southwest.
This shot was taken with only the light of the moon for illumination. Cloud cover was pretty bad but occasional clear patches allowed the moonlight to wash over the area.
45 second exposure at ISO 1250 - Fuji XT-1 18-55mm kit lens. This is a JPG. I still have not found a RAW developer I like.
I can't believe I misspelled Monument... will have to fix that later... it was late, I was tired and in a hurry.... Haste makes waste.
